One Great ... instant white chocolate tartlets

More Information

  • Honey Peanut Butter White Chocolate Creams

    From Athens Foods

    1 (4-ounce) bar white chocolate, broken into pieces, or 1/2 cup white baking chips

    1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

    1 tablespoon honey, divided

    1 (15-count) package mini phyllo shells

    1/4 cup dry-roasted salted peanuts

    HEAT the white chocolate in a small bowl in a microwave for 30 seconds and then in 10-second bursts, stirring after each, until it’s melted. Or place it a small saucepan and melt over low heat on the stove. Stir in the peanut butter and 1/2 tablespoon honey until blended.

    SPOON 1 tablespoon of the filling into each phyllo shell. Sprinkle with peanuts (chopped or whole), then drizzle with remaining honey. Let stand 10 minutes to set. You can also chill the cups until firm. (They also taste really good if you serve them still warm.)



From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite, at obsbite.blogspot.com:

This is the time of year when you need something fast and sweet, for a dinner party, bake sale, party or office occasion. Still, when I saw how simple this recipe is, I didn't think it would taste like much.

Boy, was I wrong: It takes all of 30 seconds to make and it is way, way too dangerously tasty. And it’s made from things you probably have on hand.

It came from the Athens company, which makes those mini phyllo shells, and the combination of the filling and the crispy shells is just about perfect. But you also could use the filling to top a cupcake or spoon it out to make small candies.
